could someone help me for detect dmg and heal , and i want change color like :
damage taken by red color .
damage delt by white .
heal done on target by green .
To detect damage try looking for Weep's GUI-friendly Damage Detector.
As for healing, simply add a function to the triggers of your healing spell to also notify the healer and the healed.
I think he means he wants floating text over the targets, with each different source of damage/heal being a different color.

You would need some sort of damage detection system;
And then you would need to trigger floating text for each different type of thing.
there is no 1 trigger jass for this all :D ?
and plz explain more what do u mean .
The damage detector can do just that. It includes a function which triggers the detection of how much damage was received by a unit, and also detects which unit the damage comes from. If you use that function you can convert the damage amount to an integer, convert the integer to a string and create the floating text above the damaged unit using the string.

Any heals can be detected via the trigger that caused a heal.
For example: A single target spell that heals the target by 50% of its maximum HP.

When you use a trigger for the healing spell you use a formula to calculate how much HP was restored, yes? Just use the same formula of the healing ability to display how much health was restored.
What if the target doesn't actually get healed for the full 50%?

It would be better to check his life at the start of an ability, then check it at the end.
end hp - start hp = floating text amount.
But if you check the life at the start then the end, HP regeneration could kick in and make it look like you were healed for more than 50%. Anyway, the only instants when you won't be healed for the full 50% is if you were taking damage with negative values. It would be like Chain Lightning which deals -200 damage, being used on a hero with Runed Bracer, causing him/her to gain 170 HP instead of 200. But a Holy Light that restores 200 HP to a hero with runed bracers heals for the full 200 HP, since it's not damage.
If you heal 50% of your max HP, you can easily heal over max.
What if you have 75/100 HP.
Healing 50% would heal 50.
125 > 100.

And, in the 0.1 second it takes to run the heal trigger, you might regen an extra.. 0.001 HP :p ?
Excessive healing values have been around before in RPG games. No need for precisely showing less of a heal simply because the current HP was unusually high under maximum HP.
If you heal 50% of your max HP, you can easily heal over max.
What if you have 75/100 HP.
Healing 50% would heal 50.
125 > 100.

And, in the 0.1 second it takes to run the heal trigger, you might regen an extra.. 0.001 HP :p ?

Right. That can easily be worked around ^_^

  • Heal
    • Events
      • Unit - A unit Starts the effect of an ability
    • Conditions
      • (Ability being cast) Equal to Heal
    • Actions
      • Set Heal_Real_Amount = (0.50 x (Max life of (Target unit of ability being cast)))
      • Set Heal_Point_Target = (Position of (Target unit of ability being cast))
      • If (Heal_Real_Amount Greater than ((Max life of (Target unit of ability being cast)) - (Life of (Target unit of ability being cast)))) then do (Set Heal_Real_Amount = ((Max life of (Target unit of ability being cast)) - (Life of (Target unit of ability being cast)))) else do (Do nothing)
      • Unit - Set life of (Target unit of ability being cast) to ((Life of (Target unit of ability being cast)) + Heal_Real_Amount)
      • Floating Text - Create floating text that reads (String((Integer(Heal_Real_Amount)))) at Heal_Point_Target with Z offset 0.00, using font size 10.00, color (0.00%, 100.00%, 0.00%), and 75.00% transparency
      • Floating Text - Set the velocity of (Last created floating text) to 64.00 towards 90.00 degrees
      • Floating Text - Change (Last created floating text): Disable permanence
      • Floating Text - Change the lifespan of (Last created floating text) to 3.00 seconds
      • Custom script: call RemoveLocation (udg_Heal_Point_Target)
      • Set Heal_Real_Amount = 0.00

The real value of your HP will always be capped at it's most possible maximum anyway. Maybe it would be nice to see how much HP you "would" have recovered if you hadn't maxed out yet :p

On a side note, I think we should take this down a notch. I don't think mute understands us.

Mute. Download this map. It contains a Damage Detector ad a tutorial on how to use it.

It's really up the map creator.
I'd, personally, rather show how much the unit actually got healed for.
set bHP = GetUnitState(GetTargetUnit(), UNIT_STATE_LIFE)
set hp = hp + heal
set aHP = GetUnitState(...)
create floating text = I2S(aHP - bHP)

    Need to try something

    Hopefully this won't cause problems.

    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example:

    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...

    Happy Thursday!
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I'm not so sure, there's still a lot of Thursday left for it to become unhappy.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still a few hours
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Its Friday!!!!
